Other than the host doing something stupid like having a poor connection, what do I do that causes me to white-plug? Or more accurately, what kind of shenanigans are my interwebs doing that gives me the white-plug (those are all "technical terms," BTW ). Thanks, in advance, for your great and revealing insights.
Im no expert on this stuff but I do believe it is caused by packet loss, in other words your connection has been completly cut from the server for a period of time and to make sure you dont go around on a kill spree the game pauses you in place.
The white was actually intended to stop Lag switches from creating fake packet loss but we all know how that went down.
Thanks for the MAGNIFICENT answers!!! You all have a WONDERFUL day!!!
I guess that makes sense though. I went to Freeola and had a broadband quality test and one test said 5% packet loss.
Not sure if this was known, but if you pressed select while it was up back when the game came out you were actually able to move around invisible Lol
Can you still do this, or was it patched/fixed?
What causes the lack of white plug for lagswitchers? This is a more interesting question...
